            The Tiger Moth is a large Park Flyer, but is slow and docile, so can be flown in smaller venues. The model requires intermediate building skills; some “stick framing” experience would be very helpful.


            Flying the Tiger Moth requires only intermediate flying skills as well, and would make a terrific “first biplane”. For those calm relaxing evenings, the Tiger Moth would be real hard to beat!


            The short kit contains 3 highly detailed 36” X 48” plan sheets, 9 laser cut (7 balsa 2 plywood) sheets, and a vac-formed plastic cowl, windshields, oil tank, hub caps and corrugated gas tank skin.
